The 2018 addition to the collection is Pier 28 Oscuro—a Nicaraguan-based blend that is finished with a pristine, exceptionally toothy Brazilian Oscuro wrapper leaf. This leaf stands out for more than its appearance, having a brilliant aroma of dark cherries—verging on liqueur-like sweetness. Pier 28 Oscuro is medium-full in body (occasionally creeping into full territory), bringing classic flavors of black pepper, dark spice, clove, charred oak, and campfire. Pier 28 is growing on a word-of-mouth basis, with the majority of distribution residing in the California area. However, the cigars are becoming a popular choice in cult circles, and larger online retailers have begun to take notice, allowing enthusiasts across the country the chance to experience Pier 28 for the first time—though it surely won’t be the last.
Carefully curated for you.
